Like last year/Not like last year

on
Cooler heads would say, hey, remember last year? Comeau scores five points, Bridgeport comes back and beats a young Hartford team, and improves to 2-0, and hey, what could go wrong from there? Opening night is no night for cooler heads, though, so hey: This team played hard. They worked. They stuck up for each […] [Read More]

Bullet History, Round 3

on
Updating the bullet history and the update of the bullet history, for those just joining us: 2006 continued: Captain Wotton. Comeau: four assists, then five points. Mike Mole: Walk into Hershey and win on opening night. Ah, but then… Shootouts. Caldwell for Boguniecki. Koalska’s out. Bye, Halvardsson and Aquino. Can’t win in Hartford. Win two, […] [Read More]

Afternoon light reading

Before heading to Amity, and then resting up for opening night: Jeff Jacobs upstate writes a Ken Gernander profile. Tomorrow is Gernander’s head-coaching debut.

Allan […] [Read More]

Is it the season yet?

on
Thanks to Miriam, who noticed that Trevor Smith disappeared from the roster somewhere between typing and publishing… He’s in 23, Morrison’s in 33, and no one’s in between. At least, as long as Jackman is wearing 16; he still had 28 on the lid this morning. Check the “Meet the Tigers” finale in the morning […] [Read More]

To everything, churn, churn, churn…

on
Season preview ran today, with a nice display package from David Wells on the front. Run out and get yours! Or if you’re cheap: The big bigness story. Breaking down by position. Five questions for the season. We didn’t do player capsules this year, but there’s a little-more-detailed-than-usual roster. And a glance at the league. […] [Read More]

Wreck my predictions, why dontcha…

on
It begins with Wilkes-Barre’s 5-4 win over Hershey. Chris Minard had a natural hat trick in a little under nine minutes, trumping Chris Bourque’s three-point night. (Not that the predictions were really in the paper. I’m thinking Hershey and Norfolk, Bridgeport with a chance to sneak into that discussion if things go right, Wilkes-Barre and […] [Read More]

Full house

on
Your (for some of you, anyway) 2007-08 Bridgeport Sound Tigers skated as a whole this morning. With the usual caveats about subject-to-change, here’s how they went today: F: Tambellini-Nielsen-Comeau Bentivoglio-Walter-Jackman Regier-Smith-Colliton Brennan-Johnson-Labelle-Morency D: Fata-A.MacDonald Kohn-Wotton Spiller-Fraser Masi Marjamaki was cleaning some stuff out. He said it’s not final where he’s going next. (It sounds like […] [Read More]
